A historic town centre of timbered buildings, bursting with independent shops, restaurants and pubs. Built around the site of an old castle, Priory Park is the venue for many public events and has a programme of activities for all the family.
You are now in the rolling Surrey Hills and Reigate is an excellent start point to explore the surrounding countryside, the North Downs Ridge and the Millenium Trail.
Reigate is a Community Rail Station
Reigate is well known for its 'caves', largely old sand mines. The castle mound overlooking Reigate town centre is composed of soft sandstone and has been mined over several centuries. The castle has long gone but the mound and many excavations still remain. Tours include the Barons' Cave in the Castle Grounds and the Caverns in Tunnel Road.
North Downs Way
The North Downs Way passes through 153 miles of stunning landscapes, making a great family day out, a short walk or bike ride, a really good ice cream or a life-changing long distance walk. 35 railway stations are located near the trail. Visitor attractions and country parks give plenty of reasons to escape stress and noise of modern urban living.
Just a 10 minute walk from the station, Priory Park is 65 acres of historic interest, home to Reigate Priory, currently a junior school but founded in the 13th century as a monastery. The park has formal gardens, a lake, a great playground with water features, football pitches, skate park, tennis courts and a cafe. A range of events take place each year.
